It's Almost Fall, Y'all!

*UPDATE* Well.  You guys offered some great guesses as to the great pumpkin mystery number...as last count, I had 87 pumpkin-y type things.  The closest person was Erica (no link, no email, nada) No one else was really close.  So, Miss Erica please email me or I'll have to make my official number 88 ;D


Welcome to my Fall Tour 
and my favorite time of the year.....


I've taken pictures of some of my favorite things (I make myself wait until Labor Day to break out my orange friends!): 

My entryway antique-dresser-turned-table.  I love stacking artificial and real pumpkins on candlesticks!


One of my favorite pumpkins is actually a candle..my toddler loves digging her nails into the wax.  It just adds character!

This is my dining room.  I love to keep it ready for unexpected guests.

I finally found something to stick into my $4 urn! That pumpkin is so happy.

Fun block letters spell out my favorite season in an art niche above the stairwell.

Even my laundry room is in the mood for fall.  
I love filling jars with seasonal items.

It's this tiny pumpkin's special day to be on display.  

I adore these impractical, fussy leaf plates. (I got them half off last year).

Can you find the white pumpkin?

Leave a comment and guess how many pumpkins or pumpkin-shaped items I have in my house.  If someone guesses the exact number, I'll send them something divinely pumpkin and fabulous! I'll announce the number at the end of the week...

To see more fall tours, visit The Inspired Room because it's Fall Nesting Week!

Very, very nice! I should decorate my home for Fall. Maybe then it'd feel more like fall & make me happy. ;)

Let's see...I guess...55 pumpkin things.

Debbie said...

Wow, I counted about 15 in the pictures, and I'm guessing you have about twice as many total so I'm guessing 30.

I really like the entry way.

The four little penguins say: said...

25

fortyb4forty said...

My guess is 112

Marcy Writes - The Glamorous Life said...

You have ALREADY DECORATED FOR FALL?
Oh my I am SO behind. I gotta go now- and break out my pumpkins y'all....

adymommy said...

Wow! I never knew anyone who decorated as early as my mom. She makes herself wait until her birthday, September 9th, then she breaks out all the Fall and Halloween stuff. Plus she likes getting new stuff for her birthday and Christmas.
I'll play along and guess 46

The Mind of a Mom said...

Okay I am so wanting you to come on over and do my place. Never mind that I an here in Canada crossing the border from the USA to Canada is faster then the other way round :o)
I am going to say 21 for the pumpkin stuff
btw ~ I love the white stuff

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Wow, you are seriously ready for fall! Everything looks terrific! That is the thing about fall, if you don't get going early, it slips away so fast and you miss out on the fun! Great work, thanks for linking and joining in the fun!

:-)

Mandi said...

Oh man, you've inspired me!! Fall is my FAVORITE season - but I don't even have much to decorate with! Better change that, huh? ;-) You have a beautiful house!

ilinap said...

So are you for hire to make my house look so fall fab? I too love the season and can't wait to wear boots and sweaters (all about the fashion)!

I'm guessing you have 62 pumpkins in your house? BTW, I love the white display in the last photo.

Nickel Mom said...

Your house is adorable! I love all the decorating! I haven't thought that far ahead at ALL yet. Now I will!....very inspiring! ;O)
hmmm....I guess....75 pumpkin things.

jczellar said...

Awwww, I love all your fall decorations! Waiting eagerly for the fall weather here. Enough mosquitoes and humidity already...

Hmmm, my guess is 23 pumpkin displays around your house ;-)

The Griffins Party of 5 said...

Beautiful! I love how you find little places to tuck pumpkins in too! I am guessing 61 pumpkin things in your house.

Mel @ A Box of Chocolates said...

I'm guessing 32! And will you come decorate my house?? I've always wanted to do cool things like that and think I have style, but I can't seem to bring it together. Your house is so festive!! Happy Fall!

Nancy said...

I'm still trying to stretch out the summer. Fall means winter and winter lasts waaaay too long around here. Love your decorations! I'll guess 34 pumpkins.

Lynn said...

53

Fall is my favorite season for decorations. I always laugh when people say, "How do you decorate for fall?" The possibilities are endless (and cheap!).

Muthering Heights said...

Ummm...46?

Lorie said...

I am going to go with 72. It seems like a good fall temperature type of number!

Brenda said...

Wow! Your fall decorations are beautiful! Fall is my favorite season, but I typically don't decorate. You have inspired me for this year.

I am guessing - 60 pumpkin things in your home.

Happy Fall!!

Lipstick said...

Great pics!!!! I love how you said "orange friends"

Amber (Bringing Good Home) said...

I'm going to go with 27. I'm probably under-guessing aren't I?

I love fall too!! But I've never thought of decorating this early... perhaps I should?! =)

marky said...

Very festive! I should decorate seasons more.. My house is decorated permanent summer, since that is my favorite season.

marky said...

oh and my guess is 54 pumpkins things

Mel said...

Wow! Your home is beautiful! I live in Texas, and it's still 95 degrees outside, so thinking about fall is hard...I'm guessing you have 47 orange friends!

Jeanette said...

Whew! You make me tired!! I am way behind on my decorating. I'll guess that you have 43 pumpkins.

Hugs!

Valarie said...

Ok, I am going big here, 102 :)

Neutral Dwelling said...

Fall has arrived!

P.S. He loves you... said...

I'm guessing conserveitivly because you aren't that crazy about them ....right?

17?

Lisa said...

Autumn is my favorite season with October being my favorite month. Being born and raised in MI i came to associate the smell of burning leaves and campfires with the fall. Now I live in southern FL and it is always 90 degrees. No autumn for me :( Thanks for sharing the pics. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside thinking of the autumn up north.

By the way: I guess 63 pumpkin things.

The Sullivan Sitcom said...

A girl can never have too many pumpkins. We live in a town with a Pumpkin Festival. In fact, it starts next week. LOVE IT!

BTW-My guess is 57!

AmyG said...

I absolutely love fall, but never thought to decorate so early on. I love your decorations!

I'm guessing you have about 37 pumpkins. ;o)

Jessica D. said...

This is my favorite time of year also! My guess of pumpkins is 71

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

I'll say 40.

jewels said...

Oh boy----I THOUGHT I loved fall, but you put me to shame. I definitely need to go out shopping for autumn decor now!

I am going to guess you have 121 pumpkins, real or fake, in your home.

Stacey Moore said...

happy fall! my guess is 19!

Joy said...

I'm guessing.............. 32! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fall! How can anyone not love fall? The crisp air, the changing leaves, the excitement of season change... *SIGH* Reminds me of growing up!

I, on the other hand, have not accumulated much decor for fall yet (I always wait until the end of the season). I don't know when I'll break out the festive stuff either! I have an itching to go upstairs and dig it all out now! LOL!

Jesmicwilmom said...

I am going to guess 72 pumpkins all over and hidden too.

In 90 degree SC, the pumpkin thing just doesn't seem right yet!! However, it looks gorgeous and makes me long for the beautiful 70 degree weather that will be here eventually.

This is exactly the way my mom decorated for every holiday, historic event, season, etc. We loved it. I do decorate, but not to that extent! No room for all the storage.

Karen said...

What great plates! When I had my house I had different sets of dishes for different times of the year. Now, just one set of corell and one set of plastic for eating outside. It's enough, though. Love your decorations!

Hooked on Houses said...

I love guessing games. I'm gonna guess...46 pumpkins? Am I even close?

I really like your leaf plates! You have lots of good ideas for showcasing pumpkins here, too. Thanks for the inspiration! -Julia :-)

bunchofbull-ers! said...

I :heart: fall!! And I finally live in part of the country that I can look out my windows and see God's decorations for the season!
Im gonna have to copy the pumpkin in the urn idea....cute.
I am gonna guess 59 pumpkins!

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

I LOVE your fall decorations! I am so impressed that you have already done that.

It looks so cozy and inviting - please come do my house! :)

I guess 37...

Beautiful Craziness said...

So fun...if only it were cooler! I love the seasons and believe me...the preggo belly is growing and I am coveting the cold! I would guess...58 pumpkins.

Janis said...

I guess I will have to go with 137. You seem to like them and those little ones can add up! :)

Janis

Sarah said...

Very cute! i guess you hav 37 pumpkins

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Very nice! I have most of mine out as well. U have a fun blog...looks like you like to decorate about as much as I do. cherry

Erica said...

I love my fall decorations too! I use some fake stuff, and take my time picking out just the right gourds, pumpkins, and indian corns to decorate my table and house with.

My guess is 86 pumpkins. My first guess was 127, but I decided that might be a bit too large. I still think it's a lot, though. And I love it.

franticallysimple said...

Oooh, I love fall too!
I'm going to guess 47. Am I right?

Constance The One Hundredth said...

You make me want to start decorating. I guess 44 pumpkins.

Domestic Accident said...

I'm thinking of moving in. So I guess 33.

{i}Post said...

i am saying 27! No? Come on, tell me i'm right!

i think i must steal the pumpkin on the candlestick holder idea! Brilliant!

Bella Casa said...

I love the block letters under your iron work wall hanging, I am so copying that ;)

Bella :)

The Source said...

Very nicely done! I'm guessing 73 pumpkins?

Dawn said...

I'm guessing 44 pumpkins.

I love fall, too - but I didn't know I liked it until we moved to Texas and found out that there is NO fall here. It's just hot, hot, hot... and then the holidays are here.

Blessings!

Wifeof1Momof4 said...

I counted 20 something, if you count the pumpkins in the jars.

Very, very nice decorations. I put up my doorhanger last night around 11pm .. trying to wait until techinically AFTER labor day, but I couldn't stand the wait.

Rachel said...

Beautiful -- I put out all of my fall stuff too!

World's Greatest Mommy said...

31 Was I right?

Amy said...

I love fall, too-- the colors and the weather,both.

I'm guessing 52.

And now I want to go out and buy a lot of pumpkins myself. ;)

Heather said...

I love your dining room table, so pulled together! My guess is 59 pumpkins. I personally don't think you can have too many.

Proverbs30one said...

My guess is 128.

Love it!

Kirstin said...

I love your decor! I cannot wait to decorate my own home!I am going to guess you have about 45 pumpkins in your home.

Darlene said...

I LOVE all of your Fall displays! Mine will be coming out in full force the next couple of weeks. I am going to guess 47 pumpkins around your home.

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

Such pretty displays! I especially like the mini pumpkins on candleholders!
My guess: 38

BecauseImTheMommy said...

I LOVE it all! Fall is my FAVORITE season. However, we live in the desert and if I even thought about putting orange up right now they would call the folks in the white jackets. You have inspired me, as this year I wanted to spice things up a little. THANKS FOR SHARING!!!

Jennifer (Niffer) said...

I don't know if someone already guessed this number, but i'm going with 82. LOVE your pumpkin on a candle stick idea! totally cute!

Jennie said...

There are 66 comments here, so I'm going to guess 67.

cara said...

Looks awesome!!! I'm guessing 47~

Juice said...

I'm counting each tiny pumpkin as 1 item, so your jar filled with pumpkins might have about 10 items in it. I'm going with 82.

kris said...

I'm guessing about 38 pumpkins... you are way ahead of the game girlie!
kris

Jo - To a Pretty Life said...

I love all your pumpkins! Especially the white ceramic one in your hutch. I guess 37 pumpkins ;-)

Scooterblu's Whimsy said...

Love the heritage vignette! All of your Fall decorations are so pretty! :) ~Rhonda

The Bowman Family said...

Beautiful!

Baby Tunnel Exodus said...

I've always wanted to decorate for fall like that! I keep saying (every year) when it all goes on sale at the end of the season I'll stock up. And then I never quite make it before the only things left on the clearance shelf are uber chintzy. Time to dig deep eh? :o) My guess is you have 33 pumpkins. Blessings! ~Whitney

Just Me said...

Oh I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who was anxiously awaiting September!! I love Fall decor.

Hmmm...I'm going to guess 67! HA!

MeadowLark said...

102?
I love fall, especially the weather.

Peoples Family said...

Fall is my favorite time of year! Thanks for showing us your decorating. My guess is 48 pumpkins!

Happy Mommy said...

My guess is 67 pumpkins. I love the fall themed items! Happy Fall!

Julie said...

Love your blog, just started stalking a few weeks ago, my guess for the count is 41! I heart pumpkins too.

Jenny 865-53oh9 said...

I am SO glad you've done this. Fall is my favorite time of year and although it doesn't feel Fall-ish outside, I'm really, really in the mood. Besides, this is the first year in many years that I get to go a little crazy. You've given me a few ideas to boot. Thanks!

It looks like you have quite a thing for pumpkins so I'm going to guess 48. I'd love to say 148, but that's just crazy. Right? 148 is crazy, right? Hmmmmmm.... I'm sticking with 48.

Jules said...

Okay, I'm guessing 54.

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Woweee Kazowweeee. I love those pictures. And yes I did find the white pumpkin, it looks like it needs a friend (in California). Great post and pictures.
Blessings,
Debbie

M Shriver said...

I love Autumn, too. It's my favorite season, with the pumpkin candles, and the homemade soups, and the cozy evenings! And, the down comforter gets to come out!

I'm guessing 56. And I love punkins, too!

aunties said...

Everything looks so inviting and beautiful! I counted around 21 and know I must have missed some, so I am going to say 37 pumpkins and proabaly more to come as the season is just starting:) I liked that you even decoratee your laundry room.
Your home is lovely
Happy fall!
Beth

Catherine Holman said...

Your home is so charming and inviting for fall! I also love your blog header!
Catherine

Nikki said...

Your home looks happy and ready for fall.

Ms. Tee said...

What pretty decorations! I love the little blocks spelling out Autumn - so cute. :)

Joy said...

Hey, I linked this page to my blog "Saving Pennies" at http://onehundredpennies.blogspot.com/2008/09/marisas-review.html.

If you EVER EVER EVER want to do a little review for dollar items, let me know! I know you're a thrifty Momma just like THIS Momma!

Nichole said...

Oh WOW! I love it all!! My guess is 68.

It's hard to decorate for fall here in north Texas when the days are still in the scorching 90s! I'm impressed with all you've done. The only time I get fired up to decorate my house is Christmas...then we have a huge letdown in January when everything is put away. I'm going to guess high (I think!) on the pumpkins and say 121 cause I'll bet you've got TONS of little ones tucked in every spot imaginable. :)

Jerralea said...

Hmm... I only counted 15 but I am notorious for overlooking things so I'm going to guess 32.

I love fall, too, and I've got some great fall runner with leaves on them that I'm going to put on my tables this weekend.

Courtney said...

I'm going to guess 83.

PS, we're THAT family too, only my house isn't decorated nearly so nicely :)

Runninagmuck said...

I LOVE decorating for Fall!! And I'm so jealous of your pumpkins! I still have a lot of room to add more to my collection. Each year I buy a little more during the sales.

I'm itching to dig 'em out now...

my guess is 28. =0)

Tina said...

Beautiful colours. You have inspired me to add some orange treasures around my house to celebrate the fall. I love the pics. My guess is 106

Meghan said...

Absolutely beautiful.
Can I move in?????
Please.

I am going to say, you have about 33 pumpkins.

Whimsical Creations said...

I am guessing 34.

I'm guessing 43 pumpkin-y things at your house.....

Dee said...

my comment will probably not get read but I just wanted to say WOW!!!! I love your style!

Pat said...

Fall is my favorite season too! I've only gotten a few things out so far, plan on finishing next week. My guess is 91 pumpkins

Julie

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

WOW, your decor is fabulous!! I plan to get mine out this weekend.
My guess for your pumpkins is 52.
:)

Kathleen said...

Your house is beautiful. I can't wait to decorate for fall, which is also my favorite season. I'll probably wait until next week when the weather gets a little cooler. It's pretty muggy today and I just don't feel fall in the air.

I'd say you have 72 pumpkins.

Patricia said...

My first visit here and you made me feel guilty!! Okay, up to the attic on Sunday and out come the fall decorations. You are so right though, if you don't do it early it slips away unnoticed. Thanks for the nudge,

Pat M.

Gayla said...

oooooh... just love autumn, too, and your place is so inviting and wonderful. Thanks for the tour... Gayla

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...
